This guy is still trending! Last night Monday (July 9), Def Jam recording artist Frank Ocean made his TV debut on the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. During his first televised TV performance, Ocean performed his latest track “Bad Religion” with Philly’s own The Roots. “Bad Religion” is an emotional song about love that is not openly reciprocated or understood being like bad religion. Channel Orange is now available on iTunes (a week early) and in stores July 17.
Some people are wondering if Ocean’s bisexuality announcement would hurt his career or not. It is my opinion to say that it is a new day and age in Hip-Hop; Ocean’s story is changing the face of Hip-Hop. I don’t think him revealing his bisexuality will hurt his career or ruin his record sales. For anything, I think he get more sort of praise and acclaim.
UPDATE #1: In less than 24 hours after being released, Channel Orange has sold enough units to reach #1 in the United States, U.K, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Norway.
